Passion is the engine . . .

Robert Crais:

Passion is the engine that has to fire the whole thing.  

Successful writing is all about passion, to create a world that’s full and complete and engrosses the reader. First and foremost, the reader is you.

If you’re writing about a world in which you need to research to learn about it, then feel passionate about it. If you’re not passionate about what you’re writing, you’re writing the wrong thing.

You want heat, you want fire. That’s what we gather around and warm our hands with.

Excerpted from “Fired Up,” by Jessica Strawser, Writer’s Digest, Nov/Dec 2016
